    From hipsters to outdoor junkies, Portland equals fun

    Set at the confluence of the Willamette and Columbia Rivers, Portland became a major port city in the 1830s when residents arrived via the Oregon Trail. Portland has since traded its pioneers for hipsters and, today, the bustling big city is a paradise for trendy businesses. Based in the Pacific Northwest, and with snow-capped Mount Hood serving as its backdrop, the city offers no shortage of outdoor excursions. Need a nature fix? Your Portland vacation rental puts you just 90 minutes from the breathtaking beauty of the Columbia River Gorge and the raw volcanic power of Mount St. Helens.

    Neighborhood watch: Portland districts and beyond

    Leave the comfort of your Portland vacation rental and let loose in downtown's collection of hip restaurants, bars, and museums. Foodies will drool over gourmet street food served from the food carts lining the downtown streets. If you want to hang with the locals, the nearby Pearl District bustles with activity, as former warehouses now house an array of cool bars, breweries, coffee shops, and galleries. For a fresh view of the city, walk the riverfront trail along the Willamette, or make the 90-minute drive to Mount Hood for an afternoon of skiing, snowboarding, rock climbing, and mountain biking.

    From Powell's to parks, parading through Portland

    Love getting lost in a good book? Then shop until you drop at Powell's City of Books. Dubbed the world's largest independent new and used bookstore, the 1.6-acre shop covers a whole city block. Put your book away and explore the world of Native American and Asian art at the Portland Art Museum, a local institution since 1892. Sheer beauty is on display at the 400-acre, hilltop Washington Park, where you can stroll through an arboretum, Japanese garden, and the city's beloved rose garden. Little ones will gravitate toward the park's own Oregon Zoo and Portland Children's Museum.

    It's the Pacific Northwest—of course there's rain!

    Portland's rainy reputation lives up to the hype between November and February when the city nets 5 to 6 inches of rain each month. Winter also brings chilly daytime highs in the 40s and the occasional flurry, but snow rarely sticks to the ground for long. During the summer, you'll want to break free from your Portland vacation rental to take advantage of the sunny skies and 80-degree temperatures. Enjoy mild conditions in the spring and fall when daytime highs fluctuate between the 50s and 60s.

    A magical wonderland of glaciers and gorges

    There's no escaping nature in Portland, even downtown, where the Willamette River flows from north to south, and lush green hills lie to the west. But if you really want to break away from the urban setting, venture east to Mount Hood, an active volcano whose hillsides feature glaciers and dense pine forests, or drive north to stare into the open crater of famed Mount St. Helens. Just northeast of Portland, the Columbia River Gorge offers even more natural beauty as the river cuts through a canyon whose sheer cliff walls are dotted with waterfalls.
